My shares today are more swaps that were prepared for convention.  The theme of each was Christmas, thus the title of this post.  Two of the cards use carryover holiday items and the other uses a new stamp set from the soon to be released Holiday Catalog. 
The card that is my favorite is below.  It’s not clearly shown in the photo but the card has just the right amount of sparkle.
Stampin’ Up! Northern Flurry Christmas Card
Steps for making card:  
  1. Attach the Designer Series Paper (from upcoming Holiday catalog) to card base (Cherry Cobbler, item #119685). 
  2. Emboss the Whisper White card stock (item #100730) using the Northern Flurry Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (item #120902).  
  3. Use Holiday Ornaments Framelits (item #127816) to cut an ornament shape in the corner of the card stock in the area not embossed.
  4. Attach to Designer Series layer of card. 
  5. Use Dazzling Details (item #124117) and a small paint brush to highlight embossed snowflakes.  
  6. Stamp greeting from Petite Pairs Stamp Set (item #128706 wood or 122497 clear) onto Whisper White card stock, attach and add small bow using Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine (item #123125) at ornament top.

The next Christmas card is one that is simple and serene.  The Evergreen stamp set was used to stamp the tree.  The tree outline stamp in the set was then used to stamp over the solid tree with Versamark ink and Wild Wasabi embossing powder.

The last card uses Winter Frost Designer Series Paper and the Festive Flurry Stamp and Framelits Set from the Holiday Catalog. It is a great stamp set that can be used to create a variety of winter themed cards, invitations and decorations!
